Wedged between the Alps and the Adriatic, Slovenia is widely known as one of the most sustainable travel destinations on the planet. It is also one of the best cycling countries anywhere with great professional and amateur cyclists and a growing, countrywide bicycle infrastructure. The Trans Dinarica takes full advantage of the country’s varied landscapes and cultural opportunities as it starts in the northwest corner, along the Italian border, with the Julian Alps providing the backdrop. The route follows the beautiful and electric-emerald Soča River into the Goriška Brda wine region before rolling to Slovenia’s UNESCO-recognized GeoKarst Region.
